Leadership in a Technology Driven World


This programme combines two critical and interrelated topics – leadership and technology – and will prepare you to be a more effective leader in the complex and technologically enabled world of the modern organization. While leadership has always been about inspiring and influencing people, more and more leaders must also be able to do this in organizations where digital technology is fundamentally changing how we communicate, interact, innovate, and work together.

What people are saying

It was a fantastic combination of lectures, real life experiences from CEO's who have faced the challenges of strategy transformation in a technology driven world as well as hearing from those that are real game changers, leading the way in what successful digital transformation looks like and the tools and mindset that make it successful.

As a leader it’s easy to neglect the regular health check on how I am doing in the eyes of the people I lead but also ensuring I have the right toolset to adapt to the constant fast paced changes driven by technology developments. The course gave me the space and structure to do that which is invaluable. It resets the mind, the motivation and is a chance to keep developing.

The six days were stimulating, motivating and really highlighted what an incredibly exciting time of change we are working in. The course gave me the tools to draw on to help manage transformation in a refreshed and relevant way that can move with the pace of our digital transformation.
